Best of luck.My blog sounds a lot like that, too. We bought a brand new house a year ago and I still haven't managed to get all the rooms painted. The garden? Ha! I tried to dig holes for some trees and discovered I have about 10 inches of pea gravel instead of soil.It's gonna be a long road, and I don't even have to scrape off decades of paint.
Congrats on your new store. I love to support local businesses. Don't worry about all your chores associated with your house. it will all get done in due time. I enjoy reading about all you do for your "Old House". Makes me tired but it reminds me of when my hubby and I bought our "Old House" nearly 20 years ago. Not to disillusion you but we are still working on it.
